Materials:  

This translation is written with PSP15 but can also be made with other PSP versions.

 

 

Plugins:

Preparations:

In PSP 14 & 15 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip. There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side. There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu. I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE

 

Colors:

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #829BBC

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #FFFFFF

Note: When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion

Used Colors

         
#829BBC #FFFFFF #000000          

Color Palette: Set your Foregroundcolor to Foreground/Background Gradient (Corel_06_029) - Style: Sunburst
